It is better to show the date of the letter which we are acknowledging. It is always trouble [some?] instead of [added?] to make every clue in official Correspondence plain.
To-day the Secy of the Civil Service Commission had the trouble of calling here—& I the trouble of seeing him—because in a recent letter of ours about Williams of Bermuda, we quoted various documents and did not tell the date of one of them. It will be worth while to look at that letter: it is dated 24 Oct.
